Watch: Toro Y Moi - Say That

Toro Y Moi's Chaz Bundick started 2013 right, releasing this new video for single "Say That" on the first day of the year. In it he glides down mossy forest floors, bops on empty pavements and does what looks like a hybrid running man and moonwalk (he must've known those were two of my fave moves in 1994) in a forest clearing.

More importantly, the song takes him in an exciting new direction, veering from molasses-like funk grooves to a more high-octane and synth-buzz-laden pop execution. Toro Y Moi's made a dance track, basically. And, from what I can hear, it's pretty awesome. I love how the female vocal refrain's chord progression reminds me of Bloc Party's "She's Hearing Voices", and edges the song into '90s rave territory without bashing us over the head with the reference.

Toro Y Moi's new record Anything In Return comes out on January 22nd via Carpark Records, and you can pre-order it now on the band website. Bundick will be touring pretty much worldwide with his live band from mid-January to early April, so check out if he's hitting a city near you if you like what you hear.
